Remove Grease Stains From Jeans

Step 1

Spray the grease stain with WD-40. Be sure to completely cover the stain. Allow it to saturate for at least 20 minutes. Rub dish soap on top of the WD-40 and then rinse the area well under cool running water. Apply more dish soap and launder as usual.

Step 2

Make a paste of equal parts water and powdered laundry detergent and rub it into the stain with a soft clean cloth. Launder as usual.

Step 3

Sprinkle baby powder all over the stain and allow it to sit overnight. In the morning, brush away the baby powder and launder the jeans as usual.

Step 4

Rub shampoo into the stain before washing the jeans.

Step 5

Pre-treat the stain by applying Dawn dish soap to it and allowing it to sit for 15 minutes before laundering.
